Descript now supports twenty two new languages

MARCH 9, 2022

Descript, the machine-learning-based audio- and video-editing tool I've been using to edit podcasts and video tutorials for a few years now, just launched transcription support for 22 new languages.

You can now transcribe audio or video in Catalan, English, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Croatian, Finnish, Latvian, Portuguese, Swedish, Czech, French, Lithuanian, Romanian, Turkish, Danish, German, Malay, Slovak, Dutch, Hungarian, Norwegian, or Slovenian.

It's as easy as drag-and-dropping an audio or video file to a Descript project, which not only transcribes speech to text but auto-tags multiple speakers and can swap to the active speaker's video feed automatically.
